Anti-Poverty Week | 2019

Anti-Poverty Week shines a light on the space where the system has failed people – and where Vinnies steps in to help - and you can too.

  • Stuck in 1994

    Newstart hasn't been raised in real terms since 1994 and currently keeps around 800,000 Australians living in poverty and unable to survive on under $40 a day.

  • Inside Vinnies Call Centre

    As part of our general support services to the most vulnerable among us, Vinnies Victoria operates a Welfare Call Centre staffed by volunteers.

    Read interviews with people we assist on Newstart in Victoria about their Hopes and Dreams. The findings are startling.
